In Cowboy State, Wyoming, the largest part of the Yellowstone National Park is located: with its unique variety of volcanic phenomena and incomparable fauna, you should definitely plan a night in the park: for example, in the 1903 built “Old Faithful Inn” – im Log house style built entirely of wood, this hotel is an institution in the park and definitely worth a visit. Right next door, the “Old Faithfull Geyser” spits its hot fountains into the sky punctually every 75 minutes.
South of Yellowstone, the Grand Teton National Park with its peaks of up to 4,200 meters offers a unique backdrop and great opportunities for camping, hiking, mountain biking and climbing. Just 8 miles south in Jackson, visitors expect a true Western atmosphere, art and culture, down-to-earthness and luxury. Famous are the elk paddles in Town Square and the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, where you can drink your whiskey on western saddles instead of conventional bar stools.
Speaking of cowboys: Buffalo Bill, who founded the town of Cody to the east of Yellowstone National Park, became world famous. Definitely worth a visit to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, as this is the largest collection of the “true Wild West”.
It gets really mysterious in the northeastern corner of Wyoming at the Devils Tower: the 364 meter high Magmafelsen was already in Steven Spielberg’s film “The Eerie Encounter of the 3rd Art” as an alien landing site to admire.
